0 157

The Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) has denied media reports that Cristiano Ronaldo threatened to leave the Portugal team camp at the World Cup in Qatar. “The FPF clarifies that at no time did the captain of the national team, Cristiano Ronaldo, threaten to leave the national team at any stage in Qatar,” the federation said on Thursday.

“The level of commitment of Portugal’s most capped international player was once again demonstrated … in the victory against Switzerland.”

Ronaldo reaffirmed his commitment to Portugal and the team after the FPF statement was issued.

“A group too united to be broken by external forces,” wrote the 37-year-old on Twitter. “A nation too brave to be afraid of any adversary. A team in the true sense of the word, who will fight for the dream to the end! Believe with us!” Ronaldo, who led the national squad in training on Thursday, was benched by coach Fernando Santos for the start of Portugal’s round-of-16 clash against Switzerland. (Aljazeera)
